Sweater Weather

Time to get cozy in your favorite fall sweater. I will explore a few basic sweater options for the fall season:

  • The sweater vest
  • The cardigan
  • The sweater coat/blazer
  • The oversized sweater/The chunky sweater/The turtleneck
  • Splurge on – Cashmere Sweaters

The Sweater Vest

From GQ, Abercrombie’s $50 Sweater Vest Is the Only Layer You Need Right Now. “A decade ago, you mostly encountered the sweater vest in three places: country clubs, ivy-clad college campuses, and the corner of your grandfather’s closet that hasn’t been touched since the Carter administration. Today, though—thanks to a glorious neo-prep resurgence spearheaded by stylish guys like Tyler, the Creator—the sweater vest is pretty much everywhere.

The Cardigan

I’ve written about the cardigan in older posts, but it’s worth mentioning again.

This Cozy Cardigan from Amazon Is a ‘Cottagecore Wardrobe Staple,’ and So Many Colors Are on Sale. While denim jackets and leather boots are all essentials, nothing epitomizes the arrival of the season quite like a cozy sweater. Not just any sweater, either — one that looks slouchy, is comfy, and goes with everything else in your closet.

Amazon Shoppers Can’t Stop Buying These ‘Perfect’ Cardigans for Fall — and They’re All Under $35. “Cardigans are extremely versatile, as they’re easy to throw on for a layered look suitable for fall temperatures and can be worn with a variety of outfits both, casual and formal. Whether you’re headed to the local coffee shop to grab your favorite pumpkin spice latte or out to brunch with your friends, a cardigan is always a reliable go-to that every wardrobe needs.

If closing the bottom buttons of your cardi creates an unflattering buckling situation, simply unbutton as high as you need to go to smooth things out, then toss on a high-waist skirt and a chic belt.

Cashmere sweaters will keep you warm, but they come with a higher price tag. From Business Insider, We visited a cashmere factory that makes $500 sweaters to find out what makes the material so expensive. “Cashmere is known for being one of the softest fibers in the world. Its thin hairs mean that it can be woven into incredibly soft, luxurious garments and it’s long lasting, but it comes at a cost.” 

Did you see the Seinfeld episode where George saves money on a cashmere sweater because it has a red dot? This gift purchase caused a lot of problems for George.
